Subject:   New Features at PlayShakespeare.com

Just a brief announcement to let users know about some of the latest 
developments.

First episode of Shakespeare Talks, featuring Ron Rosenbaum and Davis 
McCallum:

The Shakespeare Society and PlayShakespeare.com have teamed up to 
produce Shakespeare Talks. The podcast programs, produced in New York 
City, feature interviews, seminars, workshops and backstage passes with 
noted Shakespearean experts, educators, directors and actors. The first 
of the series features an interview with author of The Shakespeare Wars, 
Ron Rosenbaum conducted by Davis McCallum. McCallum, who recently 
directed The Belle's Stratagem at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, lives 
and works in New York. Podcasts can be heard online or subscribed to in 
iTunes. More info:

Shakespeare on your iPhone and iPod hits 500,000 mark:

PlayShakespeare.com has partnered up with Readdle.com to produce the 
Shakespeare application for iPhone and iPod users. The free application 
provides the complete works of Shakespeare, text-resizer, and a full 
concordance search at your fingertips. Now over a half million users 
have downloaded the application from iTunes and an Android version is in 
development. More info:

PowerSearch now available on PlayShakespeare.com:

Under development for nearly six months, the new PowerSearch feature is 
now active. While users could previously search the concordance or an 
individual play, the options have expanded to searching genres, poems, 
and other sites areas including our free document library. More info:

Call for volunteers to help PlayShakespeare.com go to XML:

We're currently in the process of migrating all of our plays, sonnets & 
poems to the XML format. This will allow us to provide better 
flexibility for users with new functionality like custom line numbers. 
We'd also be able to use the same versions for both the Web site and our 
popular iPhone application. We're currently looking for people to take 
on a single play and convert it to XML. It's easy and straightforward, 
but just takes a little time. More info:
